4 Tips for risk assessment


A risk assessment reduces the probability of occupational accidents occurring and ensures the safety of all employees. Carry out simple health and safety hazard checks by following these 4 steps:


  1. Inform yourself in advance about the risk assessment at the workplace

  2. Inspect the workplace and identify possible hazards.

  3. Find out if there have been any accidents in the past.

  4. Develop a plan for a safe working environment and take corrective action if necessary.


3 typical errors during risk assessment


A holistic inspection for risk assessment should be comprehensively documented. In the following, you will find three typical errors in the creation of the inspection:


  • No one-time action
    A good risk assessment should be an ongoing process, one-off checks and corrective action will not ensure sustainable safety.

  • Involve external companies
    When placing orders with external companies, the employer is also jointly responsible for their safety. The safety inspection should therefore be carried out there as well.

  • Several people in charge
    The inspection should not be carried out by a single specialist, but by several safety officers to ensure a thorough safety check.
